Pioneering Aerospace – that will be the slogan of ILA when it takes place next year at Berlin-Brandenburg Airport in the heart of Europe. From 05 to 09 June 2024 at #ILABerlin, the focus will be entirely on the future and fascination of aerospace. The leading trade show for sustainability, new technologies and innovation is the platform where the international industry, policymakers, the armed forces, research and science gather to exchange views. Among the key topics will be climate-neutral aviation and the energy transition in the skies. With its trade show segments Aviation, Space, Defence & Security and Suppliers, ILA mirrors the entire value chain of this high-tech sector.
All five partners have now paved the way for holding ILA 2024: the Senate Department for Economics, Energy and Public Enterprises of the Land of Berlin, the Ministry for Economic Affairs, Labour and Energy of the Land of Brandenburg, Flughafen Berlin-Brandenburg GmbH, the German Aerospace Industries Association and Messe Berlin GmbH have signed a corresponding framework agreement. In doing so, the parties also underline the importance of #ILABerlin for the Berlin/Brandenburg region and that of Germany as a place for business and innovation.
”ILA is the leading showcase for the aerospace sector in Germany and of great importance for eastern Germany in its role as a high-tech hub for the industry“, said Stephan Schwarz, Senator for Economics, Energy and Public Enterprises in Berlin. ”With its many innovative companies and leading research institutes, the metropolitan region of Berlin/Brandenburg is a big aerospace player. That applies particularly to civil aviation which is the focus of ILA. We are pioneers in the development of new low-emissions technologies and also set new standards at international level, from which the entire business region benefits.“
Jörg Steinbach, Minister for Economic Affairs, Labour and Energy of the Land of Brandenburg: ”The Berlin/Brandenburg region is home to international aerospace groups, SMEs from this sector and numerous suppliers who are dedicated to taking on the challenge of sustainable aviation. Brandenburg has an outstanding reputation particularly in turbine technology. Our aerospace industry is highly innovative – that is something it can impressively prove yet again at ILA 2024. I am already looking forward to the event. The signing of this framework agreement signals the official green light for this leading industry trade show.“
Aletta von Massenbach, CEO, Flughafen Berlin-Brandenburg GmbH: ”We are delighted to be able to welcome international representatives of the aerospace sector to the exhibition grounds at BER again in 2024. Over the five days of the event the capital’s airport will be the meeting place of this high-tech sector. Under the heading ‘Pioneering Aerospace’ and with a special focus on sustainability, the Berlin/Brandenburg region will provide an important boost for climate-neutral aviation for the entire sector. I would like to thank our partners for the trust they have placed in BER and the region in its role as the venue for this leading aerospace exhibition and for the as always close cooperation during the preparations for the show.”
”Taking as its slogan ‘#PioneeringAerospace’, #ILABerlin is the meeting place of the international aerospace sector“, said Volker Thum, Managing Director of the German Aerospace Industries Association. ”In 2024, ILA will again be showcasing the future and fascination of flying – which is climate-neutral, low-noise and highly innovative. Europe’s leading aerospace exhibition shows how space exploration benefits our everyday lives on Earth. Security and defence are the basis of our value system which is founded on democracy and freedom.“
Dirk Hoffmann, Management of Messe Berlin GmbH: ”We are delighted that together with our partners we have been able to secure the holding of ILA in 2024.
